"Highland", the new video from BLACKMORE'S NIGHT, the renaissance-inspired rock band formed by Ritchie Blackmore and his wife Candice Night, can be viewed below. The song comes off the group's new album, "Autumn Sky", which will be released in the USA in January 2011 (the CD was made available in Europe in September).
With a career spanning nearly two decades, the band of minstrels has gained crossover success all over the world with its fantastic medieval and renaissance inspired tunes.
In addition to being known for its unique sound combining traditional instruments, guitars and Candice's enchanting lyrics and vocals, BLACKMORE'S NIGHT is also known for its fabulous live shows, many of which have been performed at castles and other exceptional venues that add to the mystique and warmth of its performance.
"Autumn Sky" brings us 15 new BLACKMORE'S NIGHT songs, full of emotion with a touch of past times and magical atmospheres. From the glorious wanderlust-feelings of "....Highland...." all the way to the sweetness of "Strawberry Girl" and the upbeat "Journeyman", the album is again a powerful proof of the versatility of Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night's repertoire and the talents of BLACKMORE'S NIGHT band.
Recorded during Candice's pregnancy, Candice and Ritchie have dedicated the "Autumn Sky" album to their newly born daughter Autumn Esmerelda Blackmore.
